    Gabrielle Union is by far the best thing about this single-lady-in-search-of-a-life drama.... Alas, the sluggish pacing and ridiculous dialogue send the show down the drain. [31 Jan/7 Feb 2014, p.96]

    Is it too much to ask the self-proclaimed Television for Women network to create a strong female cop lead? Instead we get Abby Kowalski (The Glades' Rachael Carpani, who deserves better than this), an oh-so-cutely klutzy (oops--she walked into a pile of cans at the market!) internal-affairs detective who, even at age 30, is disturbingly trying to impress her cop daddy (Treat Williams).

    The intense stares at nothing in particular, uncanny case-solving ability, and haunting past where a loved one was killed are unapologetically lifted from well-worn pages in the TV-procedural playbook. The overall effect is just not that memorable.

    If this show is to breathe, someone should take a scalpel to the malignant melodrama. [8 Feb 2013, p.69]

    A faint facsimile of funny starring poor Sarah Chalke, who really deserves better. [5 Apr 2013, p.62]

    Too bad [Blair Underwood's] talent is wasted on this Raymond Burr reboot, which casts him as a wheelchairbound cop who dangles bad guys over buildings and delivers hacky dialogue. [4 Oct 2013, p.60]

    Michael Urie elevates the show out of mediocrity with his comedic power. [28 Sep 2012, p.63]

    It's 30 minutes of cringeworthy material, full of lazy jokes and stereotypes of overwhelmed dads and uptight ex-wives.

    The one standout is Audrey, a self-described "whole lot of woman" who's so big that "even drag queens think I'm a drag queen." She's honest and sassy without trying to hide her insecurities with empty bragging.

    It would be nice for this old Girl to go out with dignity, but at this rate, it's not looking good. [12/19 Oct 2012, p.99]

    [A] rancidly boring, Jamie Oliver-produced cooking/travel/patriotism competition.
